Welcome to the MPEG-3DGC (formerly, MPEG-SNHC) web site hosted by the GTI-UPM in Spain, where you'll find:
See https://mx.gti.ssr.upm.es/mailman/listinfo/mpeg-3dgc for instructions on how to subscribe to the reflector, use it or see its subscribers list.
Almost 1500 3D models that you may use within MPEG-3DGC-AFX CEs are located below https://www.gti.ssr.upm.es/~mpeg/3dgc/3Dmodels/.
Several people from GTI-UPM have been involved in MPEG-3DGC activities since their very beginning. In particular, Francisco Morán has attended a number of MPEG-general and 3DGC-specific meetings, starting with the 36th MPEG one that was held in October 1996 in Chicago, IL, USA. He was one of the co-editors of the AFX standard (formally, ISO/IEC 14496 Part 16), to which he contributed mainly with a technique for performing «Truly hierarchical coding of 3D models with subdivision surfaces». The work carried out inside the European MoMuSys project, which is described in http://www.gti.ssr.upm.es/~fmb/sw/MoMuSys/, was key for developing such a technique.
Acronyms: AFX = Animation Framework eXtension (MPEG-4 Part 16); CE = Core Experiment; GTI-UPM = Grupo de Tratamiento de Imágenes - Universidad Politécnica de Madrid; MoMuSys = Mobile Multimedia Systems; MPEG = Moving Picture Experts Group; SNHC = Synthetic/Natural Hybrid Coding; 3DGC = 3D Graphics Compression.
